As we hit the second round of the March Metal Madness 2014 tournament, we start to see albums that truly defined metal in the 21st Century begin to emerge. This matchup in the Mosh Pit Region is no different as two stellar efforts have moved one step closer to being named the best metal album of the 21st Century.
Rounding out the Mosh Pit Region is a battle of two metal heavyweights who packed a punch with their most powerful discs. In fact, you may feel a little punch drunk after revisiting the albums in this March Metal Madness pairing. But which is deserving of being named one of the best 21st Century metal albums? Let's get into that debate.
One of the most mysterious and potentially eclectic projects set to launch soon is Teenage Time Killer.

Slipknot / Stone Sour frontman Corey Taylor was the guest on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show this past weekend.

Before the rise of the Internet, it was damn near impossible to stumble upon the true faces of the masked nine known as Slipknot.

There has been plenty of talk that Slipknot are working on new music for 2014 and now there's some visual proof. Guitarist Jim Root, who is sitting out Stone Sour's winter 2014 tour to work on the new Slipknot album, just offered a new Instagram photo posting showing himself holding a guitar in the studio.
